Pharmacy 777 COVID-19 Vaccination Service

The Pharmacy 777 Group has over 50 locations approved as COVID-19 vaccination providers in WA, NSW and SA and vaccinations are administered in a private consultation room by your 777 Pharmacist. 

We are committed in supporting the Australian Government in providing COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community and can provide the Spikevax (Moderna) vaccine to eligible people 6 years and over, Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccines to eligible people aged 5 and over and the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine or Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine to eligible people aged 18 years and over.

  • Severely immunocompromised people are recommended to receive a third dose of vaccine which aims to maximise the immune response and therefore the benefits of the vaccine course. mRNA vaccines (such as the Spikevax/Moderna vaccine or the Comirnaty/Pfizer) are preferred for third dose vaccination. Talk to your Pharmacist or GP to determine if a third dose is suitable for you. See the FAQs for further details.
  • The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommend a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine for individuals aged 16 years and over, and some adolescents aged 12-15 years, from 3 months after you received your second or third dose. The Pfizer (Comirnaty) and Moderna (Spikevax) vaccines are the preferred booster vaccines. Individuals aged 12 to 17 can receive the Pfizer (Comirnaty) vaccine for their booster. See the FAQs for more details
  • An additional Winter booster dose is now recommended for people aged 50 years and above from 3 months after the first booster dose or 3 months after a COVID-19 infection. Adults aged 30 to 49 years can receive a winter booster dose, however the benefit for people in this age group is less certain. See the FAQs for further details.
  • Please note, there are important timing intervals between obtaining your first, second, booster (and third dose if applicable) of the COVID-19 vaccines and also between other vaccinations, see the FAQs for details. If you have questions about the correct timing for your appointment, please contact your local 777 Pharmacist.

  • I've had COVID-19, do I still need to get COVID-19 vaccinations?

    If you have tested positive for COVID-19, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends that all people should wait for 3 months after a confirmed COVID-19 infection, before receiving a COVID-19 vaccine dose.

    The next scheduled dose of COVID-19 vaccination, should then be given as soon as possible after 3 months, and you should still have all the recommended doses. 

    Waiting for a 3-month period after infection before receiving a COVID-19 vaccination is intended to optimise vaccine protection. A longer gap between infection and vaccination is likely to lead to a better immune response and result in longer protection from reinfection.

    This change in recommendation applies to all people who are recommended to receive COVID-19 vaccination (i.e., from 5 years and above), regardless of how many COVID-19 vaccine doses they have received.

    If you are eligible for the additional winter booster dose, the wait time is from 4 months after a COVID-19 infection or from 4 months after your first booster dose.

    For more information please visit the WA Health website here

  • What about a booster dose?

    First Booster Dose – Some Adolescents aged 12-15 years.

    Some adolescents aged 12-15 years are eligible for a booster dose of the Comirnaty (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine, 3 months from the completion of their primary course (either two or three doses) or 3 months after a COVID-19 infection. To be eligible adolescents aged 12-15 years must:

    - Be severely immunocompromised

    - Have a disability with significant or complex health needs

    - Have complete and/or multiple health conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19

    Currently, Spikevax (Moderna) and Nuvaxovid (Novavax) are not licensed for use as a first booster dose in this age group.
     

    First Booster Dose – Individuals aged from 16 years.

    All individuals aged from 16 years are eligible for a booster dose, 3 months from the completion of their primary course (either two or three doses) or 3 months after a COVID-19 infection.

    See the Department of Health information for further details.

  • What about a third dose for immunocompromised people?

    Individuals who are severely immunocompromised are recommended to receive a third dose of vaccine.
    This additional dose aims to maximise the immune response and therefore the benefits of the vaccine course.

    mRNA vaccines (such as the Spikevax/Moderna vaccine or the Comirnaty/Pfizer) or the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine are preferred for the third dose – talk to your pharmacist or GP about if a third dose is right for you.   

    AstraZeneca is not preferred but can be used for the 3rd dose for individuals who have received AstraZeneca for their first 2 doses if there are no contraindications or precautions for use, or if a significant adverse reaction has occurred after a previous mRNA vaccine dose which contraindicates further doses of mRNA vaccine (e.g., anaphylaxis, myocarditis).

    The recommended interval for the 3rd dose is 2 months after the 2nd dose of vaccine.

    See the ATAGI statement about the need for additional doses of COVID-19 vaccines.

  • What about a winter booster dose?

    All individuals aged from 16 years are eligible for a booster dose, 3 months from the completion of their primary course (either two or three doses) or 3 months after a confirmed COVID-19 infection. 

    The winter booster dose is available from three (3) months after the first booster dose, or from three (3) months after a COVID-19 infection for those people who have had their first booster dose. The winter booster dose is recommended for:

    - Adults aged 50 years and older

    - Adults aged 30 to 49 years can receive a winter booster dose, however the benefit for people in this age group is less certain.

    mRNA vaccines (such as the Spikevax/Moderna vaccine or the Comirnaty/Pfizer vaccine) are preferred for the winter booster dose – talk to your pharmacist or GP about if a winter booster dose is recommended for you. 


  • What is the best timing interval between other vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines?

    Please note important information regarding timing intervals between vaccines: 

    The Department of Health have advised a COVID-19 vaccine can be given on the same day as an influenza vaccine.  

    For the timing between the COVID-19 vaccine and any other vaccines, please speak to your Pharmacist, GP or immunising health care professional about the most appropriate time to make your appointment.  
     

     

  • Am I up-to-date with my COVID-19 vaccinations?

    Protection from a primary course (usually 2 doses) of COVID-19 vaccine wanes over time and protection is reduced against the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Because of this, all individuals aged over 16 are recommended to receive a booster dose to remain up-to-date. If you’re aged over 16, you can receive your booster dose from 3 months after your last primary dose. For more information, see the What about a booster dose? FAQ above.

     


  • How can I prepare for my appointment?

    Please read the factsheet developed by the Australian Government Department of Health to prepare for your vaccination. 

    For further support, please chat with your Pharmacist or GP.

  • How do I know when to book in a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

    It is recommended that you receive the two primary course doses of your COVID-19 vaccine as the same brand. We recommend to plan ahead for two doses.  Optimal protection against COVID-19 will not occur until about one to two weeks after your second dose.
     

    Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca)

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) COVID-19 vaccine is 12 weeks. The minimum interval between doses is 4 weeks. 
     

    Spikevax (Moderna)

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Spikevax (Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine is 8 weeks.
     

    Spikevax (Moderna) for children aged 6 to 11 years

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Spikevax (Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 to 11 years is 8 weeks. The interval between the doses can be shortened to a minimum of 4 weeks.   

     

    Comirnaty (Pfizer) for 12 years and over 

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Comirnaty (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine is 8 weeks.   
     

    Comirnaty (Pfizer) for children aged 5 to 11 years 

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Comirnaty (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 years is 8 weeks. The interval between the doses can be shortened to a minimum of 3 weeks.   
     

    Nuvaxovid (Novavax) 

    The recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 of the Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine is a minimum of 3 weeks. 

    Please talk to our Pharmacists if you need to confirm what the timing should be between the appointments. 

  • What about side effects?

    Please ask your Doctor or Pharmacist for the latest specific advice about side effects.

    You can use the COVID-19 vaccine side effects symptom checker if you have concerns about any symptoms  after your vaccine. 

    The checker is also available through the National Coronavirus Helpline - 1800 020 080, 24 hours a day.  

    If you think a COVID-19 vaccine has caused a side effect, you can  report it. Reports of suspected side effects help the TGA monitor COVID-19 vaccine safety. 

    Our pharmacy can report side effects to the TGA on your behalf, or you can report your side effects yourself. Visit the TGA website to find out how.  

     
  • Why do I need to wait 15 minutes after my vaccination?

    If a serious reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine occurs, it will usually occur within 15 minutes of being vaccinated . It is important for you to wait in the pharmacy for 15 minutes after being vaccinated so you can be observed for any serious reactions.

    Pharmacists who deliver vaccinations are trained in first aid and CPR and know how to respond to an anaphylactic reaction. In the unlikely event of a severe reaction, the Pharmacist and other pharmacy team members will act immediately to provide emergency assistance. 

     

     
  • What is happening with the COVID-19 Vaccination Program and pharmacy roll out?
